Chemical peels, ranked as the third most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure in 2014, do not make you shed like a snake despite its name. Instead, the solution is applied to your skin helps remove surface layers of cells to expose smoother, more radiant skin with minimal skin irritation and minimal downtime.
Used to improve skin imperfections such as acne, acne scars, wrinkles, freckles, sun damage and even scars, the treatment exfoliates layers of the skin based on the level of chemical peel used. Chemical peels can be used not only on the face, but on the chest and back as well. The most common types of chemical peels used are Trichloracetic acid (TCA), Phenol peels and alpha hydroxy acids (ACA), which are applied after your skin is cleansed. The procedure can be done in minutes, making it a great lunchtime procedure. Nurse Jenell offers several peels, custom tailored to meet your individual needs.
